It’s the last in the week of highlights from the New Sounds Live concert series from the vaults. For this program, we’ll listen to part of a concert recorded live from Town Hall back in 1990, as a benefit for Ear Magazine, featuring a solo percussion-theater performance by drummer David Van Tiegham, who turns nearly anything into an instrument when he strikes it. Also on the bill, the Kazue Sawai Koto Ensemble and a new work for several kotos. Rounding out the show is short tasty hocket for horns by Les Miserables Brass Band.
